This handsome wooden wall pocket has a bold design. Two, eight- pointed stars formed from stacked wooden diamonds are in the center of the front panel. The same wooden diamonds, stacked and studded form chevrons on the corners. Some are stacked four high, others are stacked three high with a two stack being the lowest. There is a large (16 inch deep / 16 inch wide) pocket formed by a panel with hinges and chains allowing it to open without dropping. This front panel has an open pocket (6 x 4.5 inches) with a 2 inch depth. Photos of the back show that this piece has been repaired with newer wood having been added. The front is original as far as I can tell with only a few bits of wood missing from the corners. The leather liner of the interior has been replaced with a vinyl that needs re-glued. This wall pocket is a survivor; it has been damaged and repaired, but retains it's handsome appearance. The original eye screws and wire hanger are still attached to the original board. It may have held the music in a Victorian music room. It may have held the daily newspapers for a business tycoon. It may have held the oversized fashion magazines for the lady of the house. I purchased it to hold unframed art prints. What would you use it for?
